Upcoming Events
A Message From Catherine  
Are you looking for a great way to spend time with your family during the upcoming school vacation? If so, I'd highly recommend the museum's Valentines workshop. Adults and children alike delight in Valentines, and you'll create beautiful ones while trying out new craft ideas! We'll provide the supplies - you provide the talent and love! What could be better?

PS - Don't forget that this Thursday is First Thursday! Hope to see you there.

Willie Nininger Trio Headlines at First Thursday!

Willie 2

Singer-songwriter-guitarist Willie Nininger, keyboardist John Kuhner, and drummer Ken Melton have gained a huge following in Southwest Connecticut! Seeing them perform at September's First Thursday we now know why, and we've brought them back by popular demand! Willie's clear vibrant voice is equally talented whether playing blue-grass, country, well-known oldies or original compositions, and no one can resist the hilarious interchange between the performers. Get ready for a foot-tapping good time as they play a medley of Valentines tunes! You'll laugh, hum along, and maybe even get up on the dance floor!
